    I really want the new 3.0 software but I really don't want to pay for it. (but I don't want to download it illegally) I was wondering if there is any news on Apple making the update free soon?

    Also, I have one more question, if i change my mind to spend the whopping $5.00, will the money come out of my gift certificate money that I have saved up on my account ($18.00) will the $5 come out of the credit card I have on my account?

    I don't think it will be free anytime soon.

    If you buy it it will charge your gift card.

    Apple never turns iPod touch firmwares free if it's a major debut (2.0,3.0,3.1).

    Well from my understanding, going from 1.x.x to 2.x.x or 2.x.x to 3.x.x or 1.x.x to 3.x.x, you will have to pay. But if you are at 3.0 going to 3.1.2, it's free.

    Sometimes, iTunes f***s up and gives you the update for free when you restore. That happened to me.
